Pray for Christians in Turkey. I was just listening to a story on the BBC about Catholics living in Tarsus (St. Paul's birthplace). The Church there is actually operated by the government as a museum and they refuse to allow Christians to celebrate the mass in it. Therefore, Catholics must travel over an hour away to the next city just to attend mass.
